the system. >> just a small device that you plug into the bottom of your car near the steering wheel can monitor the entire vehicle just as long as you turn the key. >> reporter: how do we defend an attack? mission secure has a computer that does five duties: monitor your car, detect a portion then inform the driver, mix the problem and tell you what happened. >> plug it into the car and do that as an after-market way to pocket against cyberattacks. >> reporter: all this technology has to happen really fast. >> or you don't have a few minutes to think about it. it's literally real time. and so we're building these protections and taking as you said the automatic corrective action. >> reporter: the company works closely with uva and the united states department of defense to get a consumer product on the market. >> what we're doing is trying to take our technology and make it stronger and better and more cost effective so it's
affordable for everybody's car. you started out on the wementer terrace with your -- weather terrace with your rain slicker. then the next time we saw you no slicker and no umbrella. what's going on? >> we have a few short hours of nice weather. that's about as good as it's going to get. we had some rain this morning. it was a little dreary cloudity out there. it's still cloudy but we'll see things clear up before more storms arrive for this evening. then the weekend, yeah, it's going to be a little cold. let's take a look outside doppler 9000. we had those showers push on troop. not much to speak of. we did have -- push on through. not much to speak of. we did have a few showers but it's drying out. what's left for the rest of the afternoon, we're talking very stray showers. you can see a couple through charles county. not much. it is going to be pretty dry and now the winds are going to pick up. it's going to be very windy but
it's bringing some warmer weather. not the best picture out here. i'm looking at the washington monument. cloudy, 55 degrees. we're going to add about 15 to that. even for areas farther south through the district or south of the district, you're going to see the upper 70s possibly. i know it's hard to believe witnesses' so cloudy -- when it's so cloudy out there but we will see things break up for a few short hours. right through the shenandoah valley, 72 for winchester, 72 for front royal. luray 73. so those warm temperatures are going to move on in. they don't last for long. these are forecast highs. we're in this nice warm sector. here's the cold front. and behind the cold front cold air. so that's going to be headed our way for friday. and really on saturday is when you'll notice the biggest difference. it's going to be blustery. let's time this out for you as it slides through our area right in time for your evening commute. most folks will wait till you're home and safely enjoying some dinner as you see the storms start to approach. between 4:00 and 5:00 for the panhandle of maryland,
hagerstown, down through martinsburg, along winchester, parts of 81. after that it 5:00 and 7:00 it starts to make its way through 270, gaithersburg, leesburg and you can see the red pockets. we'll have quick downpours, rumbles of thowndzer as well. as we -- thunder as well. as we head to 8:00, 9:00, winds stay out of the south. overnight we dry out a bit. the thunderstorms lose some intensity but we do see the showers stick around. this is 7:00 in the morning on friday. we're going to have a few wet flakes. look how warm the temperatures are. we'll -- we're into the 40s. it will melt right away but most areas will see showers stick around. by mid- to late morning, it continues. these are just showers but temperatures are dropping with the help of a northerly wind. and a few lingering showers. friday might not be the most comfortable day. same goes for saturday. saturday the winds will howl out of the northwest and temperatures barely making it into the 40s. feeling into the 30s when you factor in the wind. with that a couple of quick
success on the mountain. success this business. that's what susan believes. she is the fourth american woman to climb the seventh summit and the 12th to climb mt. everest. her latest book is called "conquering the seven summits of sales" and we're glad to have you with us. your first book "on top of the world" was very personal. but this one, what you learned climbing is what you're applying to business and you're
trying to help the rest of us climb that mountain as well. >> absolutely, hopefully helping everyone reach their dreams and either professionally or personally. >> your mantra, the three ps. you say project, prepare, and persevere. what do you mean in projecting? >> project as project your future. always having that clear vision of where you're going to go and then prepare, put the plan together, travel light, do the things that -- the activities that are going to be important and persevere. we're all going to get knocked down. we all have obstacles of course going back until we're finished. >> what put the two together, the climbing and the business success that you said this is a great fell lossty. i can -- philosophy, i can share with others. >> what i learned in climbing, having that vision, working hard but also having a plan, being an expert. working with meantors. working with experts that can help us, all those keys that
made it successful. >> is it harder in a career, like a sales career? obviously our big sales thing on pop culture is mad men and that cut throat kind of business they're in. but is being in the sales career different than being in any other career that these principles really make it worthwhile? >> would i love about sales is you have a number and it's a revenue number. climbing everest, 29,035 feet. so you have a definite objective and vision. so i like that. but a lot of people are in sales even though their titles are not sales, of course. we all have to work with colleagues and persuade a lot of people in our lives so that's really what the book is all about for sure. >> less than 30 seconds, what's your next climbing at venture? you've done the seven continents? what's the next climb? >> i did. i'm married to an international mountain guide. what we do is we go on a tracking year. we've been doing that well over a couple of decades. >> congratulations on your
>> billy: you become a couple, and you get close, but somehow it still feels like -- like you're clueless sometimes, like you don't know what to say or how to react and... i don't know. it's like learning a new dance or something. >> victoria: yeah, because you know so much about dancing. [ both laugh ] >> billy: i'll have you know that i've been watching ballroom dancing how-to videos. eh, don't ask. it's one of chelsea's things. >> victoria: oh. i had no idea. >> billy: yeah, me either. but i guess that's the point, huh? learning new things, trying not to step on people's toes, trying not to act like an idiot. >> victoria: that's how i was today with ben. i was just trying to comfort him, you know, and all the things that i said to him were just so off the mark.
